Nitro is a liquid, if it touches burning elements, it explodes. It will also explode under high enough pressure from a shockwave. It burns all at once and produces a bigger shockwave than C4, and also creates the most powerful shockwave per particle in the game. Nitro is especially volatile, so it will usually explode when created by fireworks or player, so does dragging it (You need to wait if dragged individually). It can be used to propel the player through the air like a rocket, but will kill if the fire touches the player.
